The general project objectives are:
-          Sharing of expertise between a number of EU partners with recognized competence in the area of Computer Aided Industrial Design and Innovation;
-          Address a fine-sartorial need of great demand of qualified people with IT skills and competences (medium level) 
-          Equal opportunities with regards to the employment chances and promote of young graduates; equal opportunities for both man  and women
-          Design and implementation of VET and eVET products in several languages; the eVET contents published in to specific and-Learning Platform 
-          Covering new qualifications and skills required by the labour market due to technological advances and evolution, referred to the different situation in the countries of the partnership
-          Sharing of experiences in the area of CAD training/testing among project partners 
-          Improving the collaboration relations between project partners
-          Enlarging the access of the SMEs personnel to educational resources
-          Official and mutual recognizing of competencies and IT skills
-          Development of Information Society in all countries involved within the partnership of the project 
-          Valorisation and dissemination of the project results and products at local, National and across Europe
-          Setting up a transnational network (further improving the existing links among some of the partners involved in the project), with a possibility for further development. This will allow for:

§  Setting up of a distance professional training system using ICT tools;
§  Information updating between partners concerning testing and improving of the learning products and results
§  Dissemination and valorisation of the results obtained in the different levels of the programme

The specific project objectives are:
-          Realisation of a detailed study report summarizing the problems faced by workers, in hindering them from attending life-long learning programmes,  focusing  in particular on those based in industrially-oriented SMEs  where innovation and  creativity needs to be exploited
-          Realisation of a detailed ‘innovation’ vocational training system framework developed for overcoming the limitations identified from the study report specified above
-          Effective knowledge transfer and mentoring of a number of SME stakeholders  on CAD technology, Collaborative Design and Innovation,  in the different partner countries.
Thus, the general objective of the euCAD project is to thus develop an innovative vocational training means  on  how  adults at their place of work & home, and in particular in the context of an enlarged EU, can be supported in acquiring knowledge and certifying their skills  on 2D & 3D Computer Aided Design (CAD) for  industrial applications.
 The euCAD project  will thus contribute to a higher level of innovation across European Member  States, this indeed being necessary if the whole EU is to remain competitive on a global basis.
